This studio stresses the shaping and coordination of ideas from initial concept to complete design product. A product of intermediate scale and complexity (such as a garden, small park, plaza, or campus courtyard) is developed in detail including the selection of planting, selection of construction materials, and topographic design.
The Case Study Project focuses on the relationship between structure and landscape. The three projects are mid-20th century gardens that articulate three models for the open-free plan. It is here that the landscape and building become a simultaneous experience and expression.
